Cat declawing grosses veterinarians $1200 per hour
What can I say. The Paw Project on Facebook have calculated that veterinarians make $1200 per hour declawing cats. That is why they hate, detest, are extremely anxious a ban on declawing cats. I guess that was obvious but it is nice to see a figure. Thanks Paw Project.
The calculation is worked out from a dearly departed vet who says:
“Declawing cats ‘is not bad at all’ said Folkers, whose office declaws 15 to 20 house cats each month — a third of all cats he sees — for fees of $245 to $350.”
Dr Folkers grosses $54,000 to $72,000 per year just from declawing says the Paw Project author.
One astonishing factor is that a front paw declaw (10 paws) takes 15 minutes!! Gotta push it along, keep moving them in and out the clinic.
If there are 20 million cats declawed in the USA (a fair estimate) and if the average cost is $300…the total gross revenue from declawing is:
$6 billion US dollars.
Uhmmm…I see the dilemma for Mr. Vet. The cornerstone of society. The admired one who does the right thing at all times….
He’ll have to relinquish that new car if there is a ban. Or forgo that new extension to his 5 bedroom house in the best part of town. Ohhh..what a tragedy.
